An extra day in the city of brotherly love may have cost them their health, or at least some extra time in their hotel bathroom.
A group of women reportedly recognized the players and tried to give their hometown Phillies a little help. You think the beards gave them away? The newspaper reports that the women tried to convince the players' waiter to slip some Ex-Lax in their food.
But apparently the server refused to the attempted sabotage, because when they took the field Saturday night, they looked like a bunch of regular guys.
Maybe something got lost in translation and the fans were really trying to buy the guys a drink. But it's not hard to believe a city that famously booed Santa Claus and whose writers compared the Phillies lose to the Giants to the Great 1906 Earthquake, might go to any means to win.
